Marianne - United States - Official
I have been interested in web design and digital art since
1997 when I first delved into the www. It was then that
I decided I had to be a part of the internet and all it
has to offer. I studied web design for a short time, only
to discover that graphics and digital art interested me
more. After years of working in the legal field, I decided
to become a ‘stay-at-home-mother’ to my youngest son,
and web graphics soon became a passion for me.
Note from Ian. Marianne was the designer
of one of our Gold Award website winners. Her design skills
are self evident and we are very pleased to have her a
part of our team.
The personal stuff:
I am the proud wife
of a United States Sailor, a mother of 3 children and
currently reside in Pennsylvania. In my spare time, I
do custom work from building websites to designing logos
for both commercial and personal use.

- Official Evaluator
I have worked with many types of computers before
they even were made available and used by the general
public. I may not be the greatest professional at this
but; I do know my way around computers and know what I
like to see in a site. Poetry, art and music are the fields
in which my interest rests in my spare time.
In the past I have had the great honor to hold the position
of Bayport Art Club President for four consecutive years.
I have been honored for my work with the Boys and Girls
Club of America in the past and enjoy seeing young people
use their potential to be the best that they can be. I
have helped many people on the web with graphics and award
programs and have met many terrific people along the way.
I no longer have the time to do graphics for others, but,
it was a very rewarding feeling to be of help to others
when they needed it.

I have been designing websites and graphics since
the late 90’s. I was raised by two loving and wonderful
grown up hippies and resided in northern California until
I graduated high school. I then sought my BA in Art Studio
at the University of California Santa Barbara, and, after
a long and sweet five and a half years of hard work, finally
graduated. I have been living in Santa Barbara ever since,
and have enjoyed every minute of it. My “serious” job
consists of being the webmaster at a local marketing and
distributing company. I am also co-designer of Airtight
Internet Services with my father, based in northern California.
During my spare time, I am busy doing freelance web design
and graphic design for my clients and friends, as well
as hands on arts and craft, hiking, camping, swimming,
and fostering my green thumb for plant life to be greener.
I am living happily in love with my girlfriend of four
years, and we are making a move back to northern California
to be close to family and hopefully expand the father/son
web design business. I have loved life thus far, and have
worked hard and played hard to get where I am (with some
help from family and friends). That is the only way to

Desi - Australia
From making cookie-cutter web pages with
animated GIFs all over, Desi has quickly refined his web
design skills to match his taste for minimalism. He is
a strong advocate of the practicality and usefulness of
'classic' web languages like HTML and CSS, and likes to
test websites in an "Xtreme" manner, putting
them under a range of client-side stresses to make sure
that they are usable and accessible for all.
Desi lives at desiquintans.com,
where he bemoans the state of the world while doing nothing
to change it.
